Who better to break down the best bets for the 90th Academy Awards than a movie buff from vegas? Film critic Josh Bell provides his insights to which films should walk off with the major awards–along with the cash — if the Academy Awards air on ABC Sunday, March 4 at 8:30 p.m. ET
Best Picture
Three Billboards External Ebbing, Missouri 7/5
The Shape of Water 2/1
Get Out 13/2
Lady Bird 22/1
Dunkirk 50/1
Phone Me Phantom Thread 80/1
The Post 100/1
Darkest Hour 100/1
THESE TWO LIVE UNDERDOGS ARE PROVIDING BETTING VALUE IN THE OSCAR ODDS FOR BEST PICTURE
The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outdoor Ebbing, Missouri are the front runners to win Best Picture at the 90th Academy Awards, but lovers of the underdog could find worth in Lady Bird or Get out when the Oscars hand the hardware to the best in Hollywood on March 4.
What’s Going to Win: The momentum is behind Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outdoor Ebbing, Missouri, after its wins at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the BAFTAs – all dependable ancient Oscar indicators. It also has a social conscience that’s timely although not overly divisive, which might place it directly in the sweet spot of what Academy voters wish to market (or to be seen as promoting).
What Must Win: The Shape of Water also picked up some important ancient awards from critics groups, in addition to the top honor in the Critics Choice Awards, and it boasts the most complete nominations (with 13). Guillermo del Toro’s fable about the romance between a mute cleaning woman and a mysterious amphibious humanoid monster is also more ambitious and creative than the majority of the other nominees, but it may prove too weird to prevail as Best Picture.
Best Actor
Darkest Hour 1/10, gary Oldman Timoth??e Chalamet, Call Me Phantom Thread 40/1, daniel Day-Lewis Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out 50/1
Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel, Esq. 100/1
